Bluster often compensates for fear.

Courtesy can mask a cheat.

Indignation may confirm wrongdoing.

--Don Noh

And silence can indicate holding back.

The grapevine saith bushman has experienced a bad thing.

Been a while, I forgot about those B-52's. Didn't they fly out, just north of Merced?

Also, some things are kind of easy to forget when you see them all the time...

I was thinking, it takes enough work to maintain your car. Things seem to break, even fall off every once in a while. Computers can be glitchy too.

Who takes care of those missiles? The stuff they carry up top seems to last some time at least. Unplanned obsolesce?

No wilting flowers around here, but maybe a trigger warning. I meant to apologize for "Drive On". Some stuff in it, that by the grace of good, I'll never have to witness.

good stuff. my valley experience didn't happen with eb's, goldline, or swami's. thus, it should be downgraded. 4th class? Isn't that most everything mortal, since that Honnold guy. also, I missed your trip report the first time. very good stuff.

Green cheese is a fresh cheese that has not thoroughly dried nor aged, which is white in colour and usually round in shape.

The Oxford English Dictionary gives a reference from the year 1542 of the four sorts of cheese. The first sort is green cheese, which is not green by reason of colour but for its newness or under-ripened state, for the way* is not half pressed out of it yet.

The phrase is not commonly used to describe the colour of a cheese, though there are some cheeses with a greenish tint, usually from mold or added herbs (bleu--HA!--cheese).

There are other instances in which the word "green" is used to mean "new", such as in the term "greenhorn", which refers to a n00bie.

They also move refrigerators in their spare time. TVs, microwaves, even pianos. They're all ace salesmen and clean up nicely.

They always have a blast, no matter what. Guido's the one in the boater.

George and Roy, you're off the train and we miss you.

But it's all right.

[click on Rags' pic to enlarge]

Khazakstan? Monterey Peninsula Cool.


Rags and Dee were the ones who rented Larry, Mou, and Jeff space in their place in Monterey till we found Apathy House out in Pacific Groove.

He was a huge-nosed lover of WXY Fields, hmmm, yes he was.

A grader of papers The Ragsdale I knew took himself and Dee off to the land beside the Sea known as Seaside.

I contacted them in Tuscon, AZ, where he was a butcher in the 80s, but we were never reunited.

Too bad, but that's the way of things...

Living with Rags just a few blocks from Cannery Row was an experience which made me a Steinbeck fan and of course, a fan of Fieldsian humor.

Time to dance once again.

So Penny left this side for the other.

It happens that that keeps on happening. Hi ho.

Nothing to be done but wait for our turn and count our blessings till it happens to ourselves.

Here is another 80s icon--two of them, actually.

boo hoo
or
you flew through my day, brand new

Days will come
and days will go
It's more about
the friends you know
Who'll chop yer little
world in two
And how you'll deal
when they are through
So suck it up
and grow a sack
No matter how
you get the whack
And they'll respect you
more my friend
Though you'll be
day-less in the end

Farout: Scientists spot solar system’s farthest known object

Missing photo ID#546947

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Astronomers have spotted the farthest known object in our solar system — and they’ve nicknamed the pink cosmic body “Farout.”

The International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center announced the discovery Monday.

“Farout” is about 120 astronomical units away — that’s 120 times the distance between Earth and the sun, or 11 billion miles. The previous record-holder was the dwarf planet Eris at 96 astronomical units. Pluto, by comparison, is 34 astronomical units away.

The Carnegie Institution’s Scott Sheppard said the object is so far away and moving so slowly it will take a few years to determine its orbit. At that distance, it could take more than 1,000 years to orbit the sun.

Sheppard and his team spied the dwarf planet in November using a telescope in Hawaii. Their finding was confirmed by a telescope in Chile.

“I actually uttered “farout” when I first found this object, because I immediately noticed from its slow movement that it must be far out there,” Sheppard wrote in an email. “It is the slowest moving object I have ever seen and is really out there.”


It is an estimated 310 miles (500 kilometers) across and believed to be round. Its pink shade indicates an ice-rich object. Little else is known.

The discovery came about as the astronomers were searching for the hypothetical Planet X, a massive planet believed by some to be orbiting the sun from vast distances, well beyond Pluto.

Poor Humphrey

Humphrey the Humpback
Humpback Whale
swam underneath
the ocean swells

Humphrey the Humpback
a nose could tell
was unapproached
because the smell

He swam so lonesome
in his private hell
Until one day
he met Pale Mel

Nose over tail
in love he fell
though Mel vamoosed
post haste oh well

Humphrey the Humpback
beneath the swells
swims all alone
because he smells

not ni...so sad
